Oh that's one of those free to play games with micro transactions and what not? I tend to avoid those these days. Still I can see it doing well even though people tried to get others not to play it. Maybe it's just some kind of weird effort by their whales to keep bigger whales out of the water so they don't lose their standing? *shrug*

Ok, but why #NoApexAugust? Because alliteration? That's stupid.

Microtransactions are purely cosmetic, there's no material gameplay advantage to be gained from them. This is purely people who don't understand how game dev works thinking if they stop producing content for a season they'll be able to fix all the bugs that clearly everyone is constantly dealing with, as though the art department could just switch over to writing code for a couple months. Nevermind some of the things they complain about like the matchmaking aren't even bugs, Respawn has always been up front that they prioritize queue times over perfectly balanced matches, so it's absolutely working as intended.

Partially the alliteration, partially that a new ranked season/battle pass just started this past Tuesday, so the start of August coincided with a time period right at the end of the previous season where the active players would tapper off a bit naturally as people took a break before the next one.

It was never going to work.

That's why I rely on insane acceleration out of the corner and on the straights, because I suck at apexing.

Wait...noapex isn't about taking corners wide?

Anyone who plays an EA game deserves what they get.

/same for Activision, Ubisoft, WB, etc.

If Apex Legends is so good why isn't there a Bpex Legends?!?!?

This is about as stupid as making Titanfall 1 unplayable online and thinking that's going to make the devs basically drop all support for the current game to fix whatever problem you've exacerbated on a game that no longer makes money for the publisher.

That whole business was hilarious. The guy's apparent plan was to leverage his DDOS attacks into a job at Respawn so he could somehow acquire the source code to the Korean Titanfall Online that never got off the ground and use it to release their own Titanfall community game. The degree of delusions going on and the entire community turning on him when it all came out was massively entertaining.

I do generally agree it was unreasonable to expect Respawn to spend a ton of time on Titanfall, other than to point out it's a purely online only game that they were still selling for $20 while it was pretty much completely unplayable, though I imagine the 'still on sale' part is more on EA than Respawn themselves.

Would you want to play second-best?

Now Spex Legends, that's the game for me!

An excellent description of roughly 73% of gaming complaints online.

It's almost like people on Reddit are disconnected from people not-on Reddit.

Weird, right?

I turned on my PlayStation a few days ago and Apex was downloaded and ready to go. I don't ever remember selecting or downloading from the store. I thought it was some marketing thing they were doing to try to get new players.

/disclaimer: I'm usually drunk when I play anything, so take from that what you will.
